Re: COVID-19 Positive Test

Just because you can't smell it doesn't mean others can't smell you. Remember to have a wash haha

Hope you're on the mend soon.

Re: How Long Before Tourist Areas Return to 2019

I'd say it's going to recover in 4-5 years. Any of the options for months are way too optimistic. Even when restrictions are lifted you will have people hesitant to travel, particularly international travels. No doubt there are some people that can't wait to travel once things are all opened up, ho...

Re: American Vlogger AARON EYMAN (Aaron in Cambodia) Upset with CEO (VIDEO)
